“As few hurdles as possible”

Around 100 international students accepted the invitation from the university of bamberg to attend the "study and stay in bavaria" panel discussion followed on wednesday evening. Science minister wolfgang heubisch had traveled specially from munich to talk to labor market experts and students from around the world about their opportunities after studying in germany.

The intense conversation lasted an hour and a half, and soon the podium was no longer the only place where it took place, according to the university’s press office. The foreign students in the lecture hall followed the invitation of moderator inga pflug to get involved and ask questions, or rather, to ask questions. To bring in problems, promptly. It quickly became clear that the "study and stay in bavaria" campaign was a success was by no means only interesting for the foreign listeners, but also representatives of companies took this opportunity to rethink how valuable international personnel can be.

"There’s a lot happening in the world that we have to classify", philipp froben, managing director of the upper franconia media group, explained, for example. Special knowledge about special regions is fundamentally important in his company. The action had made him think. When asked what opportunities foreign journalists had on the german job market, froben was confident. In addition to 150 editors, there were "850 other people" in the media group work. International skills are needed in many places.

Pope prays for peace in the middle east

pope prays for peace in the middle east

The people of syria are deeply wounded and divided by a conflict that does not spare even the defenseless and takes innocent victims, benedict said. "Once again i call for an end to the bloodshed, to facilitate aid to refugees and evacuees, and to pursue a political solution to the conflict through dialogue," the 85-year-old said tuesday.

The pope appealed to the parties to the conflict in the middle east to find the courage to put an end to too many years of fighting and division and to take the path of negotiation with determination. He called on the people of the countries in transition in northern africa to work together to build societies based on justice and respect for the freedom and dignity of every human being. This is especially true for egypt, this treasured land blessed by the childhood of jesus, as the head of 1.2 billion catholics worldwide stressed.

The pope called on the new leaders in china to respect religious freedom and said: "it is my wish that the contribution of religions – in respecting each other – be shown in such a way that they can participate in building a society based on solidarity."

Coburg’s preuben-adler has come back

Coburg's preuben-adler has come back

The eagle was never far away: the sandstone bird, which weighs around eight hundredweight, survived the renovation of the monument at ernstplatz on the gerust. Since yesterday it sits again on the saule, which reminds of the german-french war of 1870/71.

"The eagle was so fragile, that a transport had salvaged a lot of dangers", says master stonemason christoph kleese. That is why the eagle received its rejuvenation cure directly on the gerust, under the enclosure that enclosed the entire memorial. Micro-particle blasting was used to remove dirt and deposits that had already given the sandstone bird a dark patina.

The eagle with the powerful claws is hewn from a single block of reed sandstone. While it was possible to preserve it, the capital on which it stands had to be rebuilt. The memorial itself was made of zeiler sandstone, tells christoph klesse. It no longer exists, the quarry is exhausted. For the reconstructed capital, klesse used sandstone from sand am main, which lies opposite zeil on the other side of the main. Only a few parts of the original capital had survived, and klesse and his assistants had to reconstruct everything. It took them around 300 hours of work.

Windowsill la

It doesn’t sound good per se, but that’s the way it is, partial retirement. Flip the switch and the active becomes passive. Hm! In the grammatical sense, the passive is the "suffering form". I don’t want to suffer, I can assure you, it will come to that.

So the opposite. Day in, day out, dionysian delights? My blood pressure will probably soon be a barrier before. Also not a viable path. Avoiding the thorns of suffering as well as anarchic exuberance. Sounds like a lazy compromise. Old man – what now?

Well, as the monaco franze once said: "A bit of something is always possible"." Because right now "long live rock’n’roll" is in full swing from rainbow hammering in my ears, let at least one thing be revealed. Next month i’m going to see deep purple in concert. And if the opis, who are even older than i am, are still good, then maybe i will loosen my hair braid and become a headbanger like i once was. Rocking at 60! Yeah!

Gerd menche chairman of the animal welfare association for 25 years

Gerd menche chairman of the animal welfare association for 25 years

They quickly drew the chairman of the animal protection association into their midst. "You dear slider, all the dignitaries….", menche looked around the room. "That's why my wife told me to dress decently."

Heide menche had turned out to be a good complice for iris von crailsheim and the rest of the board of the animal protection association kitzingen city and county e.V. Proven: together they managed to make their "boss" feel at home, the otherwise "so wonderfully flowery speeches hold", briefly lost his tongue. Iris von crailsheim, menche's deputy, took the opportunity to recall the autumn of 1987: at that time, a friend had spontaneously dragged the pharmacist, who had only recently come to kitzingen, to the annual general meeting of the animal protection association – and menche had chosen the location as his second home. Chairman left. Only six months later, the then chairwoman resigned, and gerd menche was unanimously elected as his successor. Since then he has held the office of "chief advocate of the animals inne.

"Maybe it was a good thing that hesse, with his nerves of steel, couldn't know exactly what he was getting into at the time.", said iris von crailsheim. Many turbulent years followed – years in which the question was repeatedly raised: "will the animal shelter be able to be maintained??" A nerve-racking new building could be managed, but especially the withdrawal of the americans brought new financial worries to the animal shelter.

Christian pech is not allowed to return to office

As has been repeatedly reported, the deputy district administrator is accused of aiding and abetting gang and commercial smuggling in connection with the import and sale of solar modules. The public prosecutor’s office assumes damages in excess of 30 million euros. Since march, pech has been one of five defendants before the district court of nurnberg-furth. However, the proceedings were suspended at the beginning of july after numerous days of hearings, including the reading of the indictment and the questioning of witnesses, whereupon pech filed a renewed application for suspension from office. This has now been rejected and the suspension thus confirmed once again by the courts.

Important customs documents missing

As justice press spokesman friedrich weitner announced on tuesday when asked, nothing is progressing in the criminal case at the moment. "Important customs documents from holland are still missing, without which the proceedings cannot be rescheduled." As soon as the court has these documents, the process can begin again.

Which means that everything starts all over again. "A process can only be interrupted for a certain period of time", explains weitner. The "principle of immediacy prescribes a stringent hearing without rough breaks, so that the court can get a complete overall picture of the case. "That’s why it’s starting from scratch again", according to weitner.

Report: doubts about an imminent breakthrough in the brexit dispute

Report: doubts about an imminent breakthrough in the brexit dispute

Hopes for an early breakthrough in the brexit dispute could be dim, according to a media report. As the british "telegraph" reported, the renegotiations in brussel did not produce a result that could satisfy the demands of the hardliners.

To negotiate concessions from the eu, brexit minister stephen barclay and attorney general geoffrey cox travel to brussel again this tuesday for talks with eu chief negotiator michel barnier. No press meetings are planned after the meeting, however, said EU commission spokesman margaritis schinas.

Cox, whose assessment of the results of the negotiations is considered crucial for a breakthrough, was delighted with the coverage in the telegraph. Most of it does not correspond to the truth, he wrote in the short message service twitter. However, he did not give concrete details. "Complex and detailed negotiations cannot be conducted in public," said cox.

Attendance of residents at the castle meetings in the various parts of the municipality of wartmannsroth varies considerably. In windheim, hubert roth and mayor jurgen karle were pleased with the "full house".

Yes, one obviously feels quite comfortable in this friendly designed fire station. Bright colors, a modern heating system and a super architectural look invite you to linger in comfort. However, something is still missing in the whole building, namely a telephone connection.

"I want to know where the fire is, it came from the ranks of the active firefighters. In today’s digital radio age, you can see the alarm on your cell phone, but not the location of the call. At least one fax was able to provide informative relief for the firefighters who arrived later. An internet connection would also be quite useful for the operation of the meeting room by the clubs, said herbert aul.

Tuesday-dischli: the thing with the thunderstorm

tuesday-dischli: the thing with the thunderstorm

So that’s it. The first four months of the year are over. The intermediate mark turns out rather bad weather-wise. Sufficient was not it, insufficient rather fits. This is true for precipitation as well as for sunshine hours and temperatures. Target mark missed by a long way. But no matter. It can only get better.

The merry month of may is the perfect time to do so. But before he gets going on wednesday, walburgisnacht must first be survived without damage. In our widths are not the witches and ghosts on the road, it is still dangerous.

Especially the freshly set up and decorated maypoles all over the district on tuesday evening are threatened by trouble. In the past few years, every now and then one of them has come down. Which is of course a shame for those who were supposed to be guarding the tree and then – for whatever reason – gave in to sleep.
